of the show we asked you why are you awake? john tower, the answers, please? >> we have dawn. bill, glad to see you at the "way too early" high table. tyson writes, is barnicle supposed to be sitting next to you? he isn't doing anything. >> you see, tyson, grandpa barnicle wanders before "morning joe." we never know where he is going to end up. thank goodness this time he was fully dressed. we'll see you tomorrow. "morning joe" starts right now. >> what went wrong? why are we further away from a two-state solution? i'm curious. what do you believe went wrong? did you push israel too hard? mr. prime minister, i want to help out my colleague over here. do you accept the president's understanding that iran is a year away when it comes to nuclear weapons? another question i had for you -- >> chuck, how many do you got? do you guys do this in the israel press? you say you get one question and you add like five? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question. >> these are commuter questions. reiterations. >> i thought i had five. i get four questions, right? >> look. this is n
breakout. john berman has that. >> this is nuts. canadian police arrested two inmates who used a hijacked helicopter to pull off a daring prison escape. police say the inmates 36-year-old benjamin hudon-barbeau and 33-year-old danny provencal climbed a ladder dangling from the chopper. they were whisked away from this maximum security facility outside montreal. the first inmate and two unidentified suspects were apprehended really quickly. the second inmate surrendered peacefully overnight. so it's weird but over. >>> a vigil on the campus of seton hill university near pittsburgh after a deadly bus crash. the woman's lacrosse team bus skidded off the pennsylvania turnpike saturday, smashed into a tree. the bus driver and the coach of the lacrosse team who was six months pregnant were killed. there was some rain, there was some snow on the road but police have not released an official cause of the crash. >>> in a very public display of republican soul searching, the rnc is set to release an internal review of the 2012 election, what many people are calling an autopsy report. it includes so
. ill h'll be honest, i was surprised when john boehner said he trusted obama. he has been duplicitous and trying to get boehner fired. why would he say he trusts him? >> there are a lot of things we believe in and shouldn't give up on and some of the things i was talking about, i think, attracts people from both the left and right and that's supporting your right to trial by jury, your right to be innocent until proven guilty, these are such time-honored concepts that i think it allows the republican party to get bigger, but our young people want us to stand for something, really stand on principle and i think that's why the filibuster probably helped me to gain enough votes to win in the poll. >> sean: do you identify yourself as more a libertarian conservative? people ask me, i'm a registered conservative in new york, i consider myself a reagan conservative. how do you -- is libertarian fair or-- do you embrace it, what? >> it depends what people mean by it. i use the term constitutional conservative, but libertarian conservative. one reason why i think that conservative has to be m
." for the latest, let's go to nbc's kristen welker live for us at the white house. senators lindsey graham and john mccain have just issued a statement warning that if the use of chemical weapons is verified, then the united states must take immediate action. i have to ask you, kristen, how is the white house responding to these disturbing reports out of syria? >> reporter: well, they are quite concerned about the reports out of syria, martin, and i have to tell you, there are still a lot of question marks. the white house making the point that they are looking into the allegations that chemical weapons were used in syria. as you pointed out, the government is pointing fingers at the rebel forces. the rebel forces are pointing fingers at the government. you notice the language that jay carney used today was quite different in terms of referring to the rebel forces. saying at this point in time there is no credible evidence to suggest that they used chemical weapons. they are taking these reports very seriously, though, and trying to determine if this was, in fact, the case. now, of course, presiden
. that is more than two years before the wright brothers took to the air at kitty hawk. joining us john brown, the aviation historian behind what could be a revision to history. so, john, i was amazed to read you've been working on this really only since last year. you were hired to do a documentary and found about something about this man, guys stuff whitehead? >> that's correct, jon. i was just as shocked as everybody else when i found it. jon: there is a lot of evidence out there. i mean his story was covered front page in newspapers around the country. more than 100 you learned. why have we not heard of him till now? >> i heard you before the commercial break asking the question, we were wrong about the wright brothers. well we weren't. one or two historians who said that, they were either wrong or just not looking hard enough. and that's what we historians do. we dig up facts and present them. jon: all right. so, what do you know about whitehead? he was a german immigrant. he knew a lot about engines and he was also fascinated with aircraft. the plane that he flew looks very much like a
. >> that flies in the face of what bedid in the 1990s. bill clinton the president and john kasich and newt beginning we created the balanced budget act of 1997 and it was during the bush years of spending multiplied now by the obama years that we have the mess. my difficulty with the tea party freshmen isn't the true passion. they are an important part of the republican party. at the end of the day you have to govern. just saying no doesn't get you anything and create these falls crises. you can get past the false crises if you work something out. it doesn't mean sur renning principle. working together in a way that you get 60% of what you want. >> you have to go back. i don't think the tea party has created the budget crisis. we came in with members and tried to do something about it. i remember a day when april 15 is when the house and senate had to pass a budget resolution. i remember when they had to reconcile the 13 appropriations bills and a day when the president actually had to introduce his budget and today we don't do any of that stuff and that is how we got to the $16 trillion a
that sees ted cruz take on john mccain. >> we had an eminent member of the republican party describe me as whacko bird. if standing for the constitution makes me a whacko bird, then count me a proud whacko bird. >> the kind of intraparty donnybrook featuring ann coulter versus ann coulter. here is what she said two years ago. >> if you don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee. and lose. >> and here is ann coulter this weekend, landing one squarely on the jaw of the very same guy she once wanted to elect president. >> even cpac had to cut back on his speakers this year by about 300 pounds. i'm now a single-issue voter against amnesty. so christie's off my list. >> the next national election is still 596 days away. but there's no rest for republican party still duking it out. how long before a victor is declared? republican strategist mike murphy is not optimistic. predicting we will be stuck in an age of chaos and factional warlords for a while. the battle royale will be the 2015 presidential primary season. robert, you could hear dog wiss in the background during some of tho
minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry. he laid a wreath in the hall of remembrance then offered these thoughts. >> this accounting of horror is in the end a source of hope. for here we learn that we are never powerless. in our lives we always have choices. to seccumb to our worst instincts or to summon the better angels of our nature. >> the president made a quick trip to bethlehem to visit the church of the nativity with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and is now preparing to head to ahman, jordan. nbc's chuck todd traveled ahead of the president and joins me live now from there in ahman. chuck, i can only imagine the university of miami cheerleaders brought a smile to your face in amman, jordan. >> good morning. that was a great surprise. we're inside by the way. if you look behind me you can see it's a little dusty out there. there's been heavy winds almost like a sandstorm out here. it's actually something that prevented the president from choppering to bethlehem. instead he had to motorcade there. it's that type of windy day here. i say that because we coul
of new mexico or john kas governor snyder, all these people may be able to emphasize their experience but also marco rubio, you mentioned. rand paul is going may be a candidate. i think at some point for the top spot but the second part, senator from new hampshire and governor chris christie, if he gets re-elected is going to be a player if he wants to be a player. >> greta: do you see a bigger role for the people that identify themselves as tea party candidates or do you think that freshly in light of the recent rnc report certain things like suggesting perhaps fewer debates which may be more difficult for less well known candidate. what do you see looking into the future? >> a dozen debates is going to be adequate for anybody to get known. 22 hurt the republican party. chairman priebus is right. we ought to limit the number of debates. it's what the democrats did to minimize the damage to them from putting anchors in charge in unscripted events. it really hurt on our side because most of anchors were happy to pick the republicans, not concerned with jobs, economy and deficit and hea
. we'll keep you posted as we hear more about that. meantime secretary of state john kerry making a surprise visit to afghanistan in an effort, they say to repair fractured ties with that country. glad to have you with us on this monday. i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. secretary kerry finishing his middle east trip after a surprise trip to iraq of the he had a special sit-down with afghan president hamid karzai. it was his sixth time in afghanistan since president obama took office. his first as secretary of state. it comes at a krur time as the u.s. brings troops home turning more and more responsibility for security to the afghan government. chief washington correspondent james rosen joins me live now. james, bring us up to date. >> reporter: good morning. every leader between u.s. leaders and hamid karzai seems to be fraught with tension and this one is no different. aides say secretary kerry's talks will not dwell on the karzai's allegations that the u.s. and taliban are conspiring to weaken the afghan nation. rather they will discuss security concerns as the u.s. and nato
members of his party including house speaker john boehner who is ruling out the prospect of any new taxes. >> i think, by the way, there is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months. i think republicans, if they saw true entitlement reform would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional rveevenues. that means closing loopholes and arranging our tax system so that we have economic growth. >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. if we do, it will be between the two parties on capitol hill. the president got his tax hikes on january the 1st. the talk about raising revenue is over. it's time to deal with the spending problem. >> of course, the speaker is going to say that, but speaker has to say, as he is the leader of the republican house. this weekend confirmed what i said last week. a lot of people are saying no deal is in the works. they are moving closer together. the key point out of the john boehner interview was he was asked whether he could trust the president and his
the senate would then have to go over to the house and we're not sure what john boehner would do at this point in time. yesterday he indicated that he doesn't want to expend any new laws. that could trip up all of the reform. >> let me ask you, cynthia, about the politicians and passions about this. they were very hot, 90% for a better set of background checks. in fact, everything comes out with a majority. will it be brought to bear as the senate votes after easter? >> chris, i certainly hope so. i'm so glad that you are advising people to get in contact with their members of congress and members of senate. let me also say that i am so disappointed that harry reid didn't do more to at least keep the ban on high capacity magazines in the main bill. i wanted to see a ban on assault weapons as well but the ban on high-capacity magazines is so critical because those magazines have been used in virtually every major mass shooting that we've seen over the last decade. and they matter. they give the capacity to fire round after round after round without reloading. they give the capacit
guidelines or policy on drones. is this move part of that do you believe? >> yeah, i think it is. john brennan is now the cia director, has over the past year or two been leading an internal process inside the administration to try to set rules and guidelines and really a process for the drone program going forward, and it's known internally as -- it's called the play book, the idea that they are devising a set, basically of rules, and it will bring more logic to the drone program. >> bill: yeah. >> and this is coming out of that process. >> bill: well, it's interesting that -- that john brennan, the architect of our drone program, once he gets to the cia, the first thing he says is i want to get rid of this hot potato right? >> yeah. >> bill: on domestic drones who is in charge of overseeing the exploding use of domestic drones by government agencies and universities across the board? >> i don't know the answer to that. i was just the editor of the piece, but it is a good question. >> bill: it certainly is. but i think the answer is nobody knows. there are so many
statement to be made part of the record. >> got it. >> grs recently put out a memo by john reece about the definition of homeland security. the organization that doesn't know is going flounder in certain areas. we made it an all hazard risk prevention risk agency which is a possibility. you can't eliminate all risk. nor even if we could, we couldn't afford to. i look forward to all of your comments today and have frank discussions. senator carper and i over the next four years will oversite every corner of homeland security for the transparency that needs to be there, and also to see the improvement. and i appreciate his cooperation. and his leadership in doing so. i think it's healthy for you all and certainly healthy for the congress. we make a lot of decisions and a lot of times without the input that we need to have from the agencies, and getting to know what you do and how do you it and understand that better can help us as we direct funds. so i'm thankful for your work, i'm thankful your dedicated service. >> thank you, sir. senator johnson. >> mr. chairman, i wasn't prepared. l
surgeon to separate conjoined twins. he is a johns hopkins hospital neurosurgeon, very successful in his field, and he is going to retire in the next few months. that was already set to happen, and he is a conservative, and so he challenged the president at the prayer breakfast, and he has been very, very good at dishing out the red meat, and the crowd at cpac loved him. he was a very vibrant in his speech to the president, which a lot of the politicians have not really been doing that much now that the election is over, and so, he got a better reception than maybe anybody else, just in terms of an exciting everyone, and so it was notable that in the straw poll he did as well as he did. host: also, sarah palin, the previous nominee, a headline this morning, sarah palin brings down the house at the conference, and she is pictured in newspapers around the country gulp.he big what was that the >> it was a great prop. they were criticizing michael bloomberg, going after the many mentality, as she sees it, and she has had a much lower profile since the election. she is not on television. she
't try a single rotation. he just did the deadman's plunge. thanks very much, john. >>> now time for "morning joe." ♪ >>> live pictures of the airport in tel aviv. president obama will be landing in 20 minutes and we will follow the story throughout the morning on "morning joe." welcome to "morning joe." good morning. it's wednesday, march 20th. with us on the set is we have msnbc political analyst and former chairman of the republican national committee michael steele and msnbc political analyst richard wolf and former adviser to the bush administration and author of "start up nation," dan senor. in washington former representative of california and ceo of the woodrow international senator for scholars, jane harman. good to have you both and all of us together this morning. >>> right to the news. we had the two-year-old conflict in syria is entering a critical stage. both the rsyrian state news agency reports 25 people were killed yesterday. american officials say they are looking into the allegations and white house press secretary jay carney issued a warning to the assad reg
're willing to compromise, house speaker john boehner doesn't seem ready for a grand bargain. adam shift joins me in about five minutes to talk about that. >>> the island of cypress is making international waves. jackie is here. jackie, small island but big waves here? >> that's absolutely right. hi, richard. for one, europe had fallen off the radar for a long time and that's why this is getting so many attention. a lot of the reason that the dow had made this record run is because investors were hoping that europe's debt crisis was resolved. with respect to cyprus specifically, e.u. has proposed a deal as part of the country's bailout. this marks the first time a european country is calling on its depositors to keep it afloat. it's also sparking concerns about a run on the banks in europe. because if depositors in other countries start to panic about a possible tax, they try to withdraw their funds you could see big problems for european banks. >> maybe this might help in a small way. talk about a billion-dollar business and that's college ball. >> that's exactly right. total ad revenue for t
is all cigarettes. >> bill: john is calling from chicago. what do you think? >> bill: they should just actually hide the politicians and we'll be all right. >> bill: put them behind the curtain. >> caller: yeah, and they just should have a voting thing and people just vote in and that's it. and the imagine yourty wins and that's it. we don't need politicians. but these guys are just nitpicking just to push big laws, and then you are occupied with this other garbage and it makes no sense. if people are going to smoke, they are going to smoke anyway. it doesn't matter. it's like holding alcohol from kids, they are still going to be drunk. by the time they are 21 they are already drunk. >> bill: all right. we got it john. skeptical about any laws whatsoever. i think sometimes people believe the purpose of getting elected is to pass new laws. i have often thought maybe the purpose should be to get rid of some of the laws that we have. so i'm always skeptical about that. but at the same time with mayor bloomberg, it does seem that he's just on this kick right? that he is
and john kasich, so they have problems. in terms of 2016, this is going to be the first open election on both sides since 2008. i expect we will have a large field of candidates. there's no question that if hillary tosses herself into the ring, she will be a phenomenal candidate. there is a poll out today that she beats both jeb bush and marco rubio by double digits. joe biden will be a strong candidate. we have an enormous number of good governors across the country, martin o'malley, governor cuomo, so i am looking forward to it. >> do you think voters in an aging society -- part of obama's appeal was young and vibrant. does it matter? [indiscernible] >> i think presidential politics is very generational. when the country moves to a next generation of leadership, they very rarely reach back and bring in an older generation. to a certain extent that was a factor for senator mccain in running against obama and partly a factor in romney running against obama, and that is an interesting dynamic for the two most likely nominees who will be older on the democratic side. if you look at our
john kerry made a surprise visit to baghdad earlier today where he spoke to prime minister nuri al maliki. secretary kerry is now in amman, jordan, and so is chief foreign affairs correspondents andrea mitchell, traveling with the secretary of state. she joins us by phone now. andrea, what did secretary kerry accomplish with this trip to baghdad? >> reporter: well, it was a very tough trip and a tough message, because we went to baghdad, a quick visit. surprise, under tight security and secrecy, for obvious reasons, because ten years ar the war, there still are terror attacks. last week, when dozens were killed in baghdad. he was in a secure place in the embassy and then visiting prime minister maliki and the speaker of the parliament in iraq in their residences, but his message to mallski that the maliki government is permits iran to send weapons and fighters, overflight, loaded with weapons and fighters, to prop up assad in syria and that this is something that americans and the congress, that the administration, cannot understand or tolerate, and as kerry told us afterwards, it
to president obama, which shouldn't surprise anybody, but also according to john boehner and paul ryan and paul krugman and anybody else who reads or cares to read, it is official, we do not have a debt crisis. we have a long-term debt issue, but we know more as the united states has a debt crisis than a family with a mortgage has a debt crisis. if you look at your mortgage compared to how much you make it is insurmountable. if you look at it that way, you would go i'm in hell and i'm never getting out. >> it's true. >> hal: look at the stats, it would just look horrifying and if you are the kind of person who treats this country like you are a renter like our dear friend paul ryan does -- because that's how republicans look at this country, they are renters, and they don't care about the damage they leave behind. >> it's very hard to trust you to run government when you fundamentally want to destroy government. >> hal: yeah, what is your primary qualification as a baby sitter, well i hate kids and i think there should be forced sterilizations. okay. we'll be
to the question. >> interview with fox rosen, john kerry confirmed he injurevisited injured employee o was still recovering. asked if hillary clinton had done the same, the question was deflected. >> do you have more information to provide to us about that, whether congress is able to -- naud secretary clinton. >> secretary kerry? >> they haven't met with her as well. >> there has been misrepor misreporting. >> republicans in the house and senate say they are waiting to hear if the state department and the c.i.a. will make the benghazi survivors available to connial investigators. bret? >> bret: thank you. >> you're welcome. >> bret: ifing the story. try -- we're following the story. we welcome the survivors on "special report." america's veterans are getting short-changed to the tune of billions. that is later in the grapevine. up next, moving the military chess pieces around the board is bound to leave some unhapp unhappy. hey, our salads.

spat on a member of the congressional black caucus. congressman john lewis was greeted with racial slurs. they heckled congressman barney frank with anti-gay chants but democrats were undeterred by this tea party furor. they marched on to make history and sign health care into law. minutes after they did so, tea party hero michele bachmann vowed to tear the law down. >> going to get every republican to sign it and anybody else. if we get 218 signatures, nancy pelosi is forced to bring the repeal bill to the floor for a vote. >> so that was then. the this was today, three years later. >> that's why we're here. because we're saying, let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. let's love people. let's care about people. let's repeal it now while we can. >> let's repeal it. led by tea party gop has tried 36 times to take an ax to health care, today included. but guess what, the law is here to stay and the tea party, well, these days its bark is a lot worse than its bite. it turns out the caucus hasn't met since ju
as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's what the president is doing. >> so as long as the business relationship can produce positive business results it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or l
and other gay people. but this is an issue where the republican party is going to drag its heels. john boehner feels like it's a good idea to come out and say, i wouldn't support gay marriage even if i had a gay son which is so unbelievable. >> let's get a response to that. i think that's interesting. is it becoming partisan? meaning that you expect the republicans will not change their platform between now and then, next time, for president? >> no. i actually am optimistic they will, chris. in fact, the postmortem that came out today from the republican party mentioned four times that they have got to start including gay people in the party platform. >> wait a minute. what are the words? the words matter. what do you mean, including them in the platform? >> they said that they're -- oh, that's right, no, the platform actually is terrible, as it relates to lgbt people, but the report that came out today used the position that they have against lgbt people as one of the reasons why they did so poorly this past election. >> therefore? >> it has to be followed up with actual action. >> i
heard from john boehner. >> yeah, well, i -- it's more you hear the moor you can't believe. congresswoman jan schakowsky, dana milbank, thank you both for your time this evening. >> thank you. >>> still ahead, president obama makes a big statement about his second term priorities and surprise surprise, the right wing is going nuts over it. >>> plus look out, karl rove. here comes sarah palin. she's throwing red meat to the far right, and taking aim at the architect. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired, raking in millions, the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state. >>> also, the devil photo that everybody's talking about. does he look familiar to you? >>> and my live interview with the raging cajun. james carville, big show tonight. stay with us. oh this is lame, investors could lose tens of thousands of dollars on their 401(k) to hidden fees. is that what you're looking for, like a hidden fee in your giant mom bag? maybe i have them... oh that's right i don't because i rolled my account over
has 60 votes to pass the senate. but this is all a sideshow, because if john boehner doesn't decide to pick this up in the house, then for naught. >> well, it's not for fought if he can put the pressure on the house. >> that's true. >> that's certainly to me a pretty tough position to be in. if you're boehner, this has passed the upper house, i don't think the members should get a vote on it. cynthia, if sam's reporting is right, and he is a first-rate reporter, and we have a bill that includes background checks, does 2 including the ban? does it include the magazine or whatever, does it have something worth while in it? >> chris, i would like to know more about the details of the background check bill, because one of the fights between democrats and republicans has been over recordkeeping. democrats say if you don't require private sellers to keep any report of a background check, how do we even know that the background check was down? republicans have been say no records of any kind because of course the gun lobby insists that any recordkeeping will lead the government to confisca
vote for the justices. but maybe, even more chief justice john roberts, 58 years old, likely to be chief justice for a long time. you see how support for gay marriage has surged in the last year. even if he personally may be against it, he's likely to look and see, 10, 15 years, still sitting on the bench, it's going to be 70% support in the country. >> there's an institutional challenge to the court in the astonishing speed that the country has changed its mind. the people are way ahead of the elite. the president, when he ran for president was against gay marriage. the supreme court, was in a generation outlawed sodomy for gay people but not for straight people. they overturned that decision. he doesn't want to be that chief justice caught on the wrong side. at the same time, this is a court and these are justices who i don't think want to declare once and for all the way americans should live. they want to let the people do what the people are doing. >> peggy, justice kennedy in his speech in sacramento this month said, a democracy should not be dependent for its major dec
. is there anything that comes out of it stsubstantively. >> john kerry went back to meet with netanyahu. probably the best thing that can happen is we don't see any large summits convening public displace and there's hard work of diplomacy going on behind-the-scenes. i think john kerry is putting this at the top of his agenda for his at the entrepreneur as secretary of state. the president has given him the political push to do it and i think if we don't read or see big public displace then quiet diplomacy behind-the-scenes is what should be going on. >> mahmoud abbas basically saying, you know, so the idea is how can we restart negotiations. right now the netanyahu government says we should begin direct negotiations right now. let's talk. the p.a.'s position is there has to be a settlement freeze. the israeli government can floij secretly he'll stop settlement activities during the period of negotiations, referring to president netanyahu of israel he doesn't have to announce i want as a way much threading the needle. his political base will go crazy if he announces a settlement freeze. a settlem
republicans in the house or john boehner's party or that kind of thing more than any other president that i can remember. is this why, pause he's looking -- because he's looking toward those 2014 midterm elections? >> yeah. president obama, you can see coming out of his re-election which was a strong victory, continued to campaign for the fiscal cliff in november and december, then against the sequester early part of this year. he likes a foil. the problem for president obama is if he can't accomplish this, as i've said would be an unprecedented feat, then he's stuck with probably a duh minished senate -- diminished senate majority of democrats, maybe they even lose it to republicans, and a republican house. and then does he have a legacy? i would argue the only path to a legacy is through the fiscal hole now, and that would open up his ability to actually maybe win some seats for democrats who helped with the compromise and move on to clean fights on energy and education, immigration, other things. i think without that if he's seen as always campaigning against republicans and nothing chan
